If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some companies refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
In case you’ve got a hosting, you have registered a domain through our company and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email momentarily. In the same section you can also find and eventually modify the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP icon on the right side of your domains, as long as their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can get this information. If the current email address is not valid any longer, you can edit it with several clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain straight away.
